Hi, that's exactly what I hear some Indians in Mumbai say about this movie and my reaction is similar to yours. I can tell that their feelings are hurt and I want to sympathize with them. I myself come from a country (Lithuania) that doesn't get much positive attention in real life or in fiction. But this habit of ignoring everything around you and being over defensive about India can drive me mad sometimes...

I myself thought that it was a good movie, especially the first half of it, but I would not call it the best movie of the year as some do. My favourite movie about Mumbai is still "Salam Bombay", which I think, is much more realistic and sincere than Slumdog Millionaire.

Take care ~ Jurate
